Ford Falcon

ED Falcon XR6 and XR8

1 Aug 1993

Although the ED is remembered as Ford’s stopgap model to reign in the popular VR Commodore, it saw the debut of the XR series’ trademark twin headlight treatment, as well as the arrival of the XR6 wagon.

Also unique to the XRs were a front spoiler, interior trim and the 161kW/365Nm Tickford-tuned 4.0L I6 or 165kW/388Nm 5.0L V8. A “Supersport” suspension option also became available.

Meanwhile, Tickford breathed its high-performance magic on the XR8’s 5.0L V8, with a 192kW/405Nm power output being the outcome.

The Sprint aimed to be a grand tourer version of the XR8, without the EB GT’s vast price premium.

New standard features: body coloured door handles, more carpet, map pockets.
